You know, every now and then, when someone needs help and just doesn’t know what to do, they can do one of two things: they can give up and lose faith and forget that there are good people in the world who understand and who do care … or they can swallow their pride and ask for help, and hope–hope–that they’ll find at least emotional support, even if things don’t work out the way that they hoped.

Thanks to the generosity of people I’ve never met and probably never will (though in all honesty, I really wish I could or would), our house is saved. I cannot even begin to explain just how thankful I am for everyone—not just those who donated to help us, but to those who said a prayer for us, and for those who took a moment to drop me a PM to tell me that they were hoping along with me. I don’t know if you’ll ever, ever know just how deeply you’ve touched my heart and humbled my pride in a very good way, and I also hope that I can find ways to give back to all of you, too, in some way or another.

I just wanted to say a HUGE “Thank You!” to EVERYONE because you all deserve it. My boys, Eric, and I appreciate what you’ve all done for us, far more than you’ll ever know.

May God bless and keep you all, and please know, if there’s ever a time that any of you needs anything at all, please don’t hesitate to ask. As demoralizing as it can be, the alternative to swallowing your pride can always be worse.

All my love,

PS: LadyDragonTamer: I’ll add that fanart to the site … as soon as I figure out what disc I saved the site templates on so I can reinstall them! It’s great, and I’ll comment on it on DA as soon as I can!!

PS: figgerditz: Just so you know, your comment alone was enough to make me cry, and your donation made me sob (in a good way!) For that, I wanted to tell you “thanks”. 🙂 And I’ll get right to work on P9 as soon as I finish Mel’s birthday mega-oneshot … look for that no later than Sept. 12th!

  1. Aw! Yay! Thank you! I’m so excited. I LOVE Purity. I’ve never loved a fanfiction that I loved to read over and over again. Purity 9 inspired my fanfiction Love Song and it was a hit with most of my fans. Though it could never compare to your writing. I’m very glad that I was able to help you and your family out. Life may be hard now but it gets better. God is watching over your family. I learned that if you pray for something hard enough, God will answer your prayer. In my darkest hour, I prayed for God to please send me strength to get through my depression. And he did. My strength came to me in the person who is now my fiance. Sue, we are blessed. We may struggle from time to time. Maybe even for long periods of time. But it’s so much better to when your not alone. We have our family, friends, and people who care and love us supporting us along the way. AGAIN. Thank you!

    P.S. If you ever want to reach me. I’m on deviantart,, aim, and my email is It’s all just figgerditz. Even if it’s just to talk or just to say hi. I’m here for you. I wish your family best of luck.

  2. 🙂 Thanks again! I know it sounds silly, but honestly, I feel as though a HUGE weight was lifted off us. Eric told me today that he was told that his hours will go back to 10 hours a day, 5 days a week starting after Labor Day, so I’m just feeling like I can BREATHE again 🙂

  5. This is a really big relief. I know that sounds weird, but its 100 percent true. I couldn’t imagine a mind like yours having to go through something as horrible as almost losing your home. The mood in your lastest message, compared to the last few, was huge! I’m so glad 😀

    Whenever I think of your stories, it gives me another reason to smile. The world you’ve created has touched my life in a few ways, and I have to admit, I’d be kinda mortified if I didn’t get any more of it :D. Never stop, you have a talent like I’ve never seen before.

    I’m super happy everything worked out for you. Write on!

    (P.S. Toga and I have the same birthday, and I died when I found out.)
